Here is a little history of Tortolani jewelry. Frank Tortolani came to America from Italy in 1923. A second-generation jeweler, he created the line that was so popular from 1950 to 1976 and won many awards for his designs. Each of his pieces is signed on the back. In the 1960's, Frank was commissioned by Max Factor to create a line of compacts and figurines, which are also now widely collected.
